On the 1st August 2015, it’s International Helmet Awareness Day 2015 and I wanted to show my personal support to such an important day for raising awareness.
It’s so important to wear a riding hat, no matter whether you’re a novice or a proffessional. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve seen a fall and we’ve all said: “Thank god they were wearing a hat.”
A hat should be replaced every 5 years or after a significant fall.
Riders, please use this day to check your hat. Does it still fit snug on your head? Does it still meet riding hat safety standards?
If you think it’s time you replaced yours, then tomorrow is the day to bag yourself one at a discount price. All major retailers globally (including Champion and Charles Owen) are offering riders discounts on their hats.
Be wise. Wear a hat.
